quiet around here. you're a couple days overdue, aren't you? you know, come to think of it, i am. that's funny. a man can kind of lose track of time up there in the high country. who was she this time, trampas? what would you mean by that? did you get down to check the calf crop while you were up there? skimpy. seems all the cows have lost interest in romance. heh. and nester cows all got triplets. biggest calf crop in nester history. heh. you know what i think? i think it's what they put in the water. lydia e. pinkham-- that's what. well, ask jubal tatum. you don't want to let that little go-around today get to you. it's been comin' for a long time now. why, it was just like montana. what do you know about what happened in montana?
8:11am
ran into a stock detective up in the high country. the swede? swede. bunked with him first night out up in the line shack. was he running with the cattlemen or the nesters up there in montana? nesters don't have money enough to afford stock detectives. but he said a man would think it was the indian wars all over again. burned out cabins, barns, hound dog lyin' in a corral with a bullet through one eye, mules stiff-legged, burned to a frazzle... buzzards all over, rabid. the stink of death. the swede say he thought it was gonna get close to that here? he didn't say one word about here. what was he doin' up on the saddle anyway? russet huntin', i expect. what else? did you find any cut fence or damped out fires while you were up there? some. how's jubal? man: busted leg. why'd you let him off? he was branding his own calf. now, there's a coincidence for you. why, do you think he throws a long rope? if he don't, he's loco. if i was jubal tatum, and a maverick turned up on my range, i wouldn't leave it up to swede torgerson to tell me who it belonged to.
8:12am
i'd have that maverick marked and thrown before he knew what hit him. i wouldn't talk that way around the judge if i were you. wouldn't surprise him none. he threw the long rope in his time. trampas, why don't you go put your head in that basin and leave it underwater for a while? oh, i ain't faultin' the judge, boss man. but you know as well as i do the great-grandmammy of most of these cows here, boss, is somebody's maverick poppin' brush down in texas. until some smart boy like henry garth came along, swingin' his loop. well, you just keep talkin' like that, trampas. you're gonna find yourself elected president of the grange. i just might take it, too. that's it. if somebody staked me to a filing fee, show me a stretch of good grade, hand me a long rope with a wide loop in it, i'd be in business tomorrow. man: and that rope just might turn into a gun tomorrow. that's all right, too. well, they can't both be right, trampas. there ain't no right or wrong... as long as the money keeps comin' in. deal me out, boys.
